I can't buy anywhere Gskill 128GB (16GBx8) kits but I can buy 64GB (16GBx4) kits. WIll it be the same if I buy two 64GB kits with the same name as 128GB ones ?
Example:
F4-3200C14Q2-128GTZR https://www.gskill.com/product/165/166/1536561087/F4-3200C14Q-64GTZRTrident-Z-RGBDDR4-3200MHz-CL14-14-14-34-1.35V64GB-(4x16GB)

is it the same as

2x
F4-3200C14Q-64GTZR https://www.gskill.com/product/165/...DR4-3200MHz-CL14-14-14-34-1.35V128GB-(8x16GB)

Or better to hunt for 128GB kits as they are somehow tested to work better together?

They will run the same with either option. Just get whats available to you. They have a lifetime warranty and gskill cs is top notch if you ever need to use it.

Technically binned kits are supposed to be all-identical memory chips so that they behave the same when overclocked and such.

However, I've personally mix-and-matched a ton of memory sticks, and overclocked quite a few of them too, without any fuss. Making sure they're all matched isn't as big of a deal as it might have been back in the DDR/DDR2 days.
